COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest addition to our year-round lineup. For you hop heads out there, you have to try this! This American style IPA made with rye grain tops the charts at over 85 IBU (that’s a lot of bitter!). It’s starts with floral hop notes a big malty body hinting at the underlying rye grain and finishes with a nice clean bitterness.

SDalkoholic (2219) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle from Keg N Bottle #2: Color was a glowing honey tea like gold and created a thick fluffy head which soon rested to a layer of film. The aroma is strange and smells fruity and floral with dried fruits and mixture of hop combinations. The initial flavor is a shock of tart sourness with a little bitterness but not many ingredients are easily identified. There is a minor tasting of pomegranate and bready notes of grain with super funky yeast. Not as promising as the label description made it sound to be.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 20, 2010
22oz bottle from BevMo. Pours a mostly clear deep gold with a 2 finger thick white head. Nose holds hints of rye malt, faint citrus hops. Very light in body and crisp.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 19, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear rusty copper with a frothy, off white head. Aroma is citrus, light caramel, pine and floral. The flavor is a bready caramel malt base with a medium hop bitterness and a very light spicy rye character. Medium body with average carbonation and a thick, silky mouth feel. This is a really good IPA, goes down very easy and lots of flavor.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 6, 2010
22 oz bottle as an extra in a trade from smokepot23 - thanks Joe! Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with medium sized light tan head. Aroma is fairly malty, light touch of spiceyness and black pepper, touch of floral hops. Flavor is fairly malty, rather spicey from the rye, with herbal hops and touch of crystal malts. Finish is mildly bitter. This is decent overall.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Pours lightly hazy, light orange with a medium sized white head that leaves some lace. Smells earthy and citrusy with some grain. Pretty nice. Tastes lightly bitter and citrusy, lots of flavor with a nice rye, grain backbone. Pretty good. Medium body, good carbonation.

mrmartin (739) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Pour is Amber with white head and moderate carbonation Caramel Malt with rye notes. light body, easy drinking. clean quick finish. This would be a good session beer but not terribly distinctive.

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bomber poured into pint glass. I love supporting my local breweries, I need to get to this place to check it out, just been trying bombers here and there. This is a nicely floral aroma IPA, dark orange, head faded quickly. Taste is well balanced, a tad bitter and has a nice texture on the finish. I nice respectable IPA.

dankman (254) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Pours copper with a smallish head, no lacing. Pine and citrus on the nose, far from overwhelming. Bitter hops with a bit of carmely malt on the tongue. Finishes bitter, pretty clean.

22 oz bottle. Clear reddish gold pour, sticky off-white head. Crisp hops, foral, citrus, rye, and semi sweet grain. Nice refeshing IPA. I have no problems with it, but not spectacular.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 26, 2010
650 ml bottle from holiday cellar. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma is faint and indistinct with mildly spicy malts and some cooked veggies. The taste is hops forward with nutty-spicy biter hops, caramel malts, biscuit and the cooked vegetables alluded to in the nose. The palate was uneven starting thin and then building to a malty conclusion. Finishes short, dry and clean. Overall: An interesting brew.
